This is the problem, NeroVision Express 2 appears to have a big problem in memory management. This took several days to find this out, but after you edit your movie, you then have to transcode it before it gets burnt to DVD. The transcoding takes roughly 4 hours (this can vary depending on machine spec and quality of movie) to complete, but this is where it falls down. After about 3 hours the application simply disappears with no trace of it ever running in the first place. I did try this several times with diferent size projects, the maximum project size that actually worked was 1Gb or approx 15 mins of high quality video. That means that 75% of a 4.7Gb disc is wasted. So Nerovision does work but is currently no good for real world applications. My system is extremely well specified and I have a Dual Layered DVD writer; if it can't burn a single layered disc there's no way it will stretch to 9Gb disc.
Initially, I thought no problems, I'll visit the Nero website and ensure that I have the latest version of the software. I did have the latest version. I tried their online support pages and its extremely limited. I tried various forums and discovered that this problem was fairly common. So I contacted the Nero Technical Support Team. This is the other great failing, the service offerred by the support team is very poor. They have given me a generic solution that didn't make any difference and in corresponding to my issue they take a while to reply if at all.Read more ›
Unlike other companies Ahead gives you lots of free updates as well as just bug fixes.
Much better than the competition, easy interface backed up with a powerful core. Well worth the money.
So when I first started using Nero 6 the traditional way (i.e.,Burning Rom and Express) it was like a seeing a familiar friend.
However, the Nero StartSmart interface makes selecting your preferred application a breeze.
Unfortunately, the included InCD 4 is absolute rubbish. Even after downloading the latest InCD updates I still suffer from corrupted files and damaged CD-RW disks. It makes no difference whether I format the disks using Mount Rainier or the traditional packet writing way.
My PC constantly requests me to send in report after report to Microsoft when I use this application and then locks up when I try to eject the disk.
It's a great idea in principle but it's just not reliable enough to use.
The power-pack (Nero Digital and Nero Vision Express) is excellentallowing you to not only rip full DVD's to 1x 700mb CD at excellentquality (about 4x better than VCD!) incredibly fast (30 mins for a 2hourfilm) but also allows you to make your own professional looking DVD's fromvideo clips with their own menus that are highly easy to customise usingyour own pictures as backgrounds etc.
PROBIBLY THE BEST SOFTWARE I HAVE USED IN A LONG TIME!!
MONEY WELL SPENT :)
>1 It is quite difficult to install because it needs to have Windows Media Player uninstalled, or at least stopped. As users of WMP later versions will know it is not possible for this player to be uninstalled unless one is an accomplished hacker. It can only be stopped for a few seconds using Task Manager, and it will then restart. So to install Nero 6+Powerpack, Task manager has to be opened and on top showing running processes, the Nero 6 application its installer has to be started and got to the point of having entered the serial number and then stop Windows Media Player using Task manager and instantly hit "Next" in the Nero installer, otherwise the Nero installer will autoclose.
>2 The "install the suite" option does not work well and does not install all the applications: so install them one by one.
>3 Then immediately reboot and upgrade [no problems with Windows media player for this] because the applications on the CD are all six months out of date.
The whole installation and upgrade will take over 30 minutes and require three reboots minimum.
>4 The "InCD" packet writing application is none standard, unlike standard DLA packet writer [i.e. Drag&Drop]it has to have the Windows "Record to this CD" turned on and it does not, despite the claim to do so, support "DVD+RW" media.
5> The online Help is really, really bad.
To sum up, this is a good reasonablly priced suite for experienced Nero users but for others starting to burn CD's and wanting more than the useful basic burner offered by Microsoft Windows XP Pro, the more expensive packages from Roxio or Sonic would be a better buy and more versatile
